ETRAP - Education and Training in Radiation Protection

The Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear and the European Nuclear Society are organising the 4th international conference on education and training in radiological protection, ETRAP2009, in Lisbon from 8 - 12 November 2009.

Education and training are the two basic pillars of any policy regarding safety in the workplace.  ETRAP2009 will provide the necessary platform for a comprehensive and transdisciplinary approach to education and training in radiological protection.


The conference addresses the largest potential audience, covering policy-makers, the medical sector, industrial radiographers, NORM experts, the engineering sector, the non-nuclear industry, social sciences researchers, safety experts, regulators and authorities. Furthermore, it aims to reinforce the contacts between various organisations, individuals and networks dealing with education and training policies in radiological protection. Special attention will also be paid to attracting and inviting young professionals to ensure knowledge transfer and to help build the future of radiological protection.
